No, because the ruling doesn't apply to pay at all, only to maximum permissible hours -- essentially a health and safety thing.
The unions are pushing for the hours to count for pay as well, but that would take a new ruling.
LOL, talk about these guys being taken for a ride!
I think the problem is that the guys were not likely to get taken for a ride.
Just because you ride a bike, doesn't mean you can ride in the road and ignore traffic lights, ignore stop signs, cut the lane in between cars and have the gull to grab onto a car and use it as a speed booster.
Indeed it doesn't. And I don't know about where you are, but in the UK most of those things are likely to get the cyclist a hefty fine if caught. Sure, some cyclists try it on anyway, but how many motorists can say they've never exceeded a speed limit?
A Christian POV is that witches don't necessarily realize that they've made a pact with the devil
Fixed that for ya. (Most Christians of my acquaintance seem to have heard of that idea but consider it nonsense.)
What, and cut off Big Pharma's revenue stream for palliative drugs?

No court time at all for abstracting the electricity. If you read the article (yes, I know, I know...) you'll learn that the police agreed this was a ridiculous arrest and de-arrested him ("de-arrested" is more of a statement than simply releasing him without charge -- pun unintended; it means that the arrest should never have happened, and the arrest is struck from the legal record so it won't give the person difficulty getting visas etc.)
He's still in trouble for acting like a dick when he was arrested, though.
In space, no one can hear you fart.
